Now open at 910 J Street is SolCal—San Diego’s first Vegan Market Café and Juicery with a built-in Naturopathic doctors office. Created by former NFL great, Jacob Bell and Food Network’s celebrity chef, Anne Thorton, SOL CAL is serving fresh cold-pressed organic juice, single source organic coffee, teas and elixirs, a full menu of grab-n-go salads, sandwiches, soups, tacos, wraps and Veganly Delicious ice cream and desserts.
“When I played in the NFL and ate super healthy for a living, I was lucky to have a private chef and always wanted to provide the same quality food for the public,” says founder and former NFL player Jacob Bell. That’s why Bell teamed up with celebrity chef Anne Thorton. Chef Anne’s delicious, healthy food she once made exclusively for celebrity clients, is now available to everyone.
SOL CAL also has a built-in doctors office. Naturopathic Doctor Aliza Cicerone is on-staff to offer holistic healing treatments daily. And general manager Thomas McCann joins the team as an expert in Integrated Nutrition.
Every detail in the restaurant was designed with intention, from every chair in the space to every word on the menu. Interior design and visual branding was created by Studio Hus, an LA-based interior design firm. Copywriting and brand voice was developed by Blaser Creative, Inc.
Everything on the menu is pressed, squeezed, ground, pureed, mixed, chopped and churned in-house and made with 100% certified organic, GMO-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan and unrefined ingredients. Bell says, “We started SOL CAL to give people the healthiest possible food at a good price in a convenient way. Because we all deserve better options.” This new addition to San Diego’s healthy restaurant scene promises its customers one thing, “Healthiness is Happiness.”
